WWE Hall of Famer D-Von Dudley recently joined the he A2theK Wrestling Show to discuss a wide range of topics, including the ECW legend’s thoughts on former multiple world champion Batista, and how difficult it was to work with The Animal at the start of his career. Highlights from the interview can be found below.
Says it was difficult to work with Batista early in his career:
“It was really hard at the beginning because he was such a big man that some people thought it was best to train him like a big man during his training and not take any bumps.”
Recalls playing a game with Batista and thought he was getting ribbed:
“So by the time he got to me I thought it was a joke, I thought someone was playing a rib on me. Because I remember him (Batista) running up to him during a game with Triple H with a clothesline. When I told Dave the spot, Dave looked at me and he said ‘Rev, how do I do that?’, I just looked at him and went ‘are you serious?’”
